Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort – 2 Corinthians 1:3
How often do we simply celebrate in our heart that God shows us so much kindness?
God shares in our feelings and understands us. He treats us with the tenderness of a loving Father. This deep love is shown to us in the grace God holds out to us through Jesus. He is the one who has saved us, and we give ourselves to Him. We call Jesus, Lord, because we serve Him and belong to Him. We are servants who follow Jesus out of thankfulness for what He has done for us and how He continues to watch over us.
God seeks to continually comfort us and encourage us. He knows our fears, needs and sorrows. He always reassures us of His promise of eternal life which takes away our greatest fear. He encourages us with His promise of always being with us and always providing. He can comfort us because He knows He is working out all things for our good, even those things that bring us deep sadness.
God loves us so much. Celebrate Him by being joyful and thankful!
